The Omega Man (stylized as The Ωmega Man) is a 1971 American science fiction film directed by Boris Sagal and starring Charlton Heston. It was written by John William Corrington and Joyce Corrington, based on the 1954 novel I Am Legend by the American writer Richard Matheson. The film's producer, Walter Seltzer, went on to work with Heston again in the dystopian science fiction film Soylent Green in 1973.

The Omega Man (1971) is a must-see classic.
I suppose the best thing about the movie is the technology... very reminiscent of the technology in Soylent Green (1973) - another great Chuck Heston flick. Still, the subliminal impression of Frankfurter collectivism is obvious in the character bias of the then contemporary race struggle - (the cause of the complaint being a conflict predating the Freudian sexism of the era). Comparatively, relating to current trends - this movie supersedes a great many films which are currently being passed off as good films.
